I know I said this show was going fast, but my ingrained expectation for Shonen to take hundreds of episodes to get anywhere is still getting the better of me here. Because in episode 7 Tanjiro comes face to face with the demon he’s been looking for, much to my shock.
Guess I’m going to be reviewing these after all. After saying his farewells to his old sensai, we kick right off in episode six with Tanjirou arriving in the town to the north with the goal of dealing with the demon that’s been abducting young girls. As per usual, we’re wasting no time with getting right into the meat of things.
This spring season has been a slow burn for me. With nothing immediately jumping out and dragging me in with cold, clammy hands. I had to search out which shows I wanted to invest my time into through… recommendations. Seriously though, without Youtube not throwing especially cute shows at me through their algorithm I ended up finding Demon Slayer through a different kind of grapevine: Human interaction!
